I'm with the PM on this one. Long winding lists lose readership but also credibility. Live memorably? I get he was only 30 when he wrote it but never cleaning it up over the next 40? If one of these was 'Avoid the vague and insipid' it'd be tidier.

I respect his list as is, without criticism. It's his list. More goals to shoot for.
Although, I do agree that Moses gave us 15, Crash..., eh, 10 commandments and that Jesus said 2 were enough.
The priests said " Be nice."
"Hear the wise players, read the old prayers"
Incredible String Band

I don't hear any preaching in his songwriting though.
Hunter took a shot at it. Here's one I remember.
One Thing To Fly

Love some of his song writing. Just a Little Light is a favorite. Did you read his memoir? Always wanted to know more about his falling out with Weir.

I like JaLL too. I never knew it was a JPB song , I just thought of it as a Brent song. I have not read his book or about Weir.
I read about Weir and Hunter . Something like. Hunter gave Weir the lyrics to US Blues. Bob put them in his pocket, washed his jeans and the lyrics were gone. Bob told Hunter he didn't really care for the song but asked if he could have the title for his song One More Saturday Night. I have friends like that too.
Could be Truth or Bologna though

I never saw this before now.
